Sign in to the Browsealoud Portal

As more and more software uses common authentication methods like Google or Microsoft IDs to access secure websites, application-specific usernames and passwords are becoming a thing of the past.  

These methods provide enhanced security such as multi-factor authentication alongside a whole host of security controls when compared with bespoke security controls.  

At Texthelp, we take your security very seriously so we’ve updated how you login and access the Browsealoud Customer Portal.

You may already have a Google or Microsoft ID that is linked to your email address.  If you are not sure please check with your IT Team.

If you try to login with your Google or Microsoft ID and it doesn't work, please contact us.
